Neither did I notice it about the base before you mentioned it. It looks entirely fine, especially when viewed from a distance. The Hellcannon looks great now, though I think the barrel's light is too yellow. If I were you I'd tone down the peripheral light on the cannon mouth with more orange and red to let the yellow furnace flame inside come into its own.

Very nice army! The dark, fiery look of it all is very close to how I imagine Chaos Dwarf hosts. You've been speedy with it as of late.

As for the writing: High Skull Priest. Only in Warhammer. Big Grin

Nice development of the story. I like how Chaos and its devotees came forth as brutal and ruthless creatures for whom degradation and humiliation of enemies is second nature. I guess the explicit uppity-hand threats at the end suits Warhammer, though not as tasteful as the rest of your writing. But it's a working way to show a tenuous alliance and set up the Khorne army in an arrogant position prior to being defeated - if that's what's going to happen.

Later on when I've got a regular job again I'd gladly support a Kickstarter for Titan Wargames writings. Here's to hope Baggronor regains his enthusiasm. I want Blunderbusses from him if nothing else!

Got anything more in the pipeline for the Legion? Happy

RE: The Legion of AstragothThommy H 04-30-2014

Thanks for the nice comments, guys!

Skink: the crewman (crewdwarf?) with the flaming skull in the pincers actually has a bit of OSL on his mask and beard, but the lightning on the photo isn't that great as I had to snap it quickly before the camera's battery ran out! I have a basic rule with OSL though, which is that I only do some from things that are part of the same model. The reason for this is simple: I have glowing bases on every single miniature. If I get into what should be reflected from other models, the whole thing will never end, so I have to rein it in a bit for my own (already fragile) sanity!

Admiral: the yellow looks better IRL. The photo washed out some of the contrasts, so it has a bit more of a glow on the actual model. The concept was that they load their gruesome fuel into the furnace at the back and it gets pumped through all the workings then shunted forward in one huge blast that is far more energetic and thus brighter.

And I'm not sure what you mean by some of this story being "less tasteful", but I'm glad you're still following along and enjoying it.

Sorry, only nitpicking needlessly. I've only always found it odd when bad bosses in cooperation threaten one another in an uppity-hand manner, but I realize this is all about personal taste rather than more objective writing skills, so I withdraw my unfair statement. Happy

I realized this log didn't have the stars it deserve. Well that's all sorted out now.

RE: The Legion of AstragothThommy H 04-30-2014

Haha, I quite like them bickering. Silly boys who both think they're in control of the situation, neither quite knowing how much they've bitten off. Setting up a cataclysmic battle between your biggest rival and a band of murderous cultists on the doorstep of your valuable and lightly-defended outpost is a pretty colossal gamble, but that's Chaos Dwarfs for you!

Thanks for the stars!
